“DEHUMANIZATION” Land of the Free by The Killers See the squeal, part one- fear and part two- ignorance and hysteria. ... I don’t like to get political, but my concerns at the moment do not lie in policy squabbles. They lie in the fact that people are being categorized and treated as numbers and general ideas. When we attempt to simplify big problems into something we can use to win elections or fulfill selfish motives, we end up forgetting that ALL humans are complex, just as we believe ourselves to be. Once we stop recognizing this quality in others, especially those different from us, this is when it becomes dangerous. Please recognize PEOPLE when you see numbers and faces on screens. They are real. This is not a simple issue or simply a “national crisis”. It’s not a plague or a disease. These are humans. These are lives. I hope lives can mean something to all of us, regardless of political party, gender, race, class, or these idea constructions meant to divide us. I hope that we can agree on this. It seems that if we cannot, that will be the real crisis.
